Onondaga County’s Department of Social Services – Economic Security is responsible for providing public benefit programs to the citizens of our county. More than 120,000 members of our community will receive some benefit through DSS-ES this year. The benefits available vary greatly, from Temporary Assistance and SNAP (food stamps), to energy assistance (HEAP), day care subsidies, child support and medical insurance (Medicaid).
